Game Arrivals: Week Ending Feb. 23rd

Here is this week's exciting game arrivals:

   New Game!
University  Edition

Cheapass Games
Tak is a 2-player abstract game introduced in Patrick Rothfuss' novel, The Wise Man's Fear

This compact version is easy to learn how to play but provides plenty of depth.  Players take turns either adding a piece to the board, or moving a stack of pieces under their control.  Playing a flat piece adds to your road, while playing a piece in the standing position creates a wall, and your capstone piece counts as your road and a blocker. To win, a player must create a line of pieces connecting opposite sides of the board.

Empires of the Void II tells a story about eight fringe planets and the species that live on them through unique event and action cards. You'll find ancient ruins, stop planetary wars, transport desperate leaders to distant locales, and rescue worlds from imminent invasion. You also must choose whether to conquer or befriend the aliens you encounter. Conquering gives areas on which to build, but using diplomacy gives you a special ability and allows you to recruit the alien units to strengthen your forces.
